But with so many possibilities, how do you choose the one that’s best for you? You want to do something unique but still classic and romantic.

If your idea of romance is strolling the countryside with your beloved or enjoying an intimate picnic for two, our horseback proposal package might be the right option for you. This lovely couple recently made their own history at BlissWood. While they’re originally from South Africa, they didn’t meet until they were both living in Houston, Texas.
Their journey began at the Red Barn – that’s where they saddled up for a romantic guided horseback ride to the scenic Enchanted Lake. Upon their arrival to the gazebo, everything was ready and waiting for them. There was chilled champagne, fresh cut flowers, and chocolate-covered strawberries. All he had to do was ask the question!
After he got the answer he’d been hoping for, the happy couple enjoyed a toast in their private little hideaway. A BlissWood proposal is sure to be a memorable one, but it never hurts to capture the moment by booking a professional photo session with Skeeta Hagler, our resident photographer.

It’s that time of year when we’d all love to pack up and go somewhere warm. But you don’t have to travel all the way to the Caribbean for a relaxing tropical escape.

Every couple deserves the wedding of their dreams. But not every couple wants to deal with planning a big, formal production. That’s why we’re happy to offer packages for a rustic elopement in Texas, here at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch.
We recently hosted an elopement for a very special couple with a very special meeting story that proves that love often finds you when you’re least expecting it. Unbeknownst to the groom, his mother was playing Cupid. She created a profile for her son on Match.com and found a handful of eligible mom-approved bachelorettes. When she told her son there were five women who wanted to meet him, she had to own up to her secret matchmaking. But as it turns out, one of those lovely ladies ended up being the one for him. Which goes to show, sometimes mother knows best!
It was love at first sight and when the groom saw the scenic grounds of BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, he knew it was the perfect place to have an intimate wedding ceremony.
But, in love and in weddings, you don’t always get what you plan for. Thanks to some cold and rainy weather, the ceremony was moved from the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake to Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant. And afterward, the happy (and dry) couple enjoyed a romantic dinner at the restaurant.
Fortunately, the sun appeared the following day and these newlyweds were able to get some gorgeous outdoor shots with our Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Skeeter Hagler. In the end, this couple got the wedding they had dreamed of, and the lovely photos to remember it. We’re so glad we could make their day special, and they can’t wait to plan a return visit to BlissWood.
If you (or your mom) would like to plan a small wedding or elopement, give us a call us at 713-301-3235. We’d love to be a part of your special day!
